The Nothing Phone (1) has received its first update, delivered over the air (OTA). Nothing OS 1.1.0 has been released, and along with it comes a 120 MB upgrade that addresses a few bugs and adds new functionality. One of the latter is a non-fungible token widget that allows you to show your non-fungible tokens directly on your device’s home screen. The ownership of NFTs is recorded on the blockchain, which enables individuals to assert that they are the rightful owners of specific works of art, historical tweets, and other digital assets.

Consumers have another chance to gain or lose money through speculation because NFTs may be bought or sold. And the image that serves as a placeholder on the Nothing Phone (1) is the NFT that the CEO of Nothing, Carl Pei, acquired for an astonishing 89.99 Ethereum (at the time, it was valued at $310,997, but it is now worth $138,567.50). On the device, the NFT Gallery area will now be accessible via the widgets menu.

But we digress. After installing the update, owners of the Nothing Phone (1) will be able to remove the Google Search bar from their home screen, and they will also have access to the Glyph fill lights while holding the phone in portrait position. The primary and ultra-wide sensors will now give greater color constancy and crisper and less noisy photos when taken in low-light circumstances.

The update makes it possible to access specific controls on your Tesla from your mobile device, but only if you have a Tesla. For instance, you may use your Nothing Phone (1) to switch on the air conditioning in your Tesla before entering the vehicle, turn on the lights inside the car, and even flash the headlights to assist you in discovering where you parked the car.

One of the eliminated bugs caused the under-display fingerprint sensor to vanish when the phone was in lock screen mode. Additionally, both the speed and functionality of Face Unlock have been enhanced. This update also includes the Android security patch for July.

Carl Pei, a former co-founder of OnePlus, is the mind behind Nothing, which has produced a set of truly wireless earbuds called the Nothing ear (1) and a smartphone called the Nothing Phone (1). The display on the device is 6.55 inches and uses AMOLED technology. It has an FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and an adaptive refresh rate ranging from 60 to 120 hertz. The Snapdragon 778+ chipset can be found under the hood, while memory capacities of 8 or 12 gigabytes, together with 128 or 256 gigabytes of storage, are available as configuration choices.

The gadget is equipped with dual speakers and a pair of 50MP camera sensors on the back (the primary camera has an aperture of f/1.8, while an ultra-wide camera has an aperture of f/2.2). A selfie camera with 16 megapixels can be found up front. The back of the device is see-through, and lights on the back illuminate to let the user know when they have new notifications.

It is anticipated that the 4500mAh battery would be able to run the device through the entirety of a day, and the optional 45W charger will bring the battery from 0 percent to 65 percent in just thirty minutes. The Nothing Phone (1) has a price tag of €469 or £399 (about $478). However, it is not sold in the United States. The most expensive model, which has 12 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of storage space, costs €549/£499 ($560).
